Birds... at Widewater Lagoon and Arundel WWT

at a loose end today.. had a wander at Widewater Lagoon.. the lone Knot wasn't about

Little Egret


Couple of Redshanks about

and a vessel not far off shore

Then onto Arundel WWT...

I THINK this might be a chaffinch and the best view of it I could get... but... there's something about the head that suggests something else???

and a couple of Coots that went to war with each other!!  the fight went on for about 10 minutes

The sunshine was glorious but the strong wind was bitingly cold!!

I think your chaffinch might be a male brambling!

ah thanks Simon.. far more like a Brambling!! the head colouring, apart from anything else, is wrong for Chaffinch..!!
